Kahleah Copper Becomes First Player to Record Multiple 30-point Games in EuroLeague This Season
Since adding a WNBA championship and Finals MVP to her belt, Kahleah Copper hasn’t slowed down one bit, becoming the first player in the Women’s EuroLeague this season to record multiple 30 point games.
In 26 minutes, the 2021 All-Star dropped 35 points, grabbed three rebounds and four steals on an efficient 12-18 shooting from the field, leading Avenida (6-2) to a 77-69 win over MBA Moscow (2-6).
The former 7th overall pick in the 2016 draft has been playing in the EuroLeague since November 16th, when Spanish club Perfumerias Avenida announced its signing of Copper. Since joining the EuroLeague, Copper has been on a tear. In her November 24th debut, Copper scored a team-high 25 points, shooting a scintillating 9-11 from the field while swiping two steals in Avenida’s 96-54 win over KSC Szekszard.
In her very next game against UMMC Ekaterinburg, Copper dropped 34 points, six boards, and three dimes in 30 minutes on the court. Copper and Perfumerías Avenida Basketball Club’s next matchup will be against fellow WNBA guard Jasmine Thomas and TTT Riga on Saturday.
